Our Lord thus appears only to those who look for Him. He will not be seen in this character by men whose eyes are blinded by self and sin

Wisdom of the Ages – Charles Spurgeon

What can I do this day to honour the Lord? I will promote His glory by my spoken testimony, and by my practical obedience.

Honouring God

“…for them that honour me I will honour,
and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed”
1 Samuel 2:30

“Do I make the honour of God the great object of my life and the rule of my conduct? If so, He will honour me. I may for awhile receive no honour from man, but God will Himself put honour upon me in the most effectual manner. In the end it will be found the surest way to honour to be willing to be put to shame for conscience sake.

Eli had not honoured the Lord by ruling his household well, and his sons had not honoured the Lord by behaviour worthy of their sacred office, and therefore the Lord did not honour them, but took the high-priesthood out of their family, and made young Samuel to be ruler in the land instead of any of their line. If I would have my family ennobled, I must honour the Lord in all things. God may allow the wicked to win worldly honours; but the dignity which He Himself gives, even glory, honour, and immortality, He reserves for those who by holy obedience take care to honour Him.

What can I do this day to honour the Lord? I will promote His glory by my spoken testimony, and by my practical obedience…”

Wisdom of the Ages – A.B. Simpson

Like coals without fire, we are useless. As an offering without the sacrificial flame, we are unaccepted

Wisdom of the Ages

“Christ is not a reservoir but a spring. His life is continual, active and ever passing on with an outflow as necessary as its inflow. If we do not perpetually draw the fresh supply from the living Fountain, we shall either grow stagnant or empty, It is, therefore, not so much a perpetual fullness as a perpetual filling”
– A.B. Simpson

Wisdom of the Ages

Charles Spurgeon

“Doubt discovers difficulties which it never solves; it creates hesitancy, despondency, despair. Its progress is the decay of comfort, the death of peace. “Believe!” is the word which speaks life into a man, but doubt nails down his coffin”
– Charles Spurgeon
